Beer and oysters make everything better—and our region has both in abundance. Home to over 60 craft breweries and surrounded by water teeming with beautifully briny bivalves, Long Island is a sipping and slurping delight.

This season, as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic continues to limit travel options both abroad and out-of-state, take advantage of the beer and oyster bounty right here at home, by using this map—beautifully illustrated by artist Chamisa Kellogg—to plan your own food and drink adventure. Cheers!

Looking for a great local beer that gives back? Treat yourself to a can of Good Reef from Blue Point Brewing Company. A light-bodied, easy-drinking ale that pairs perfectly with oysters, Good Reef is brewed in collaboration with the Billion Oyster Project, which plants 5 oysters on local, NYC reefs for every pint sold, improving water quality and working to restore New York Harbor. Cheers to great beer and supporting an even greater cause!
